A rare offering from classical guitar builder, Stephan Connor
5A Madagascar rosewood back & sides
5A Flame Redwood top (mind bending) !
This redwood soundboard is quite dramatic and was modeled after his "Fire" guitar from his "Elements" series. The ancients believed the World to be composed of 4 basic elements – Fire, Water, Air, and Earth. These were considered the critical energy forces that sustained life. This guitar represents the FIRE element.
